Ripplefest announces first names for its 2023 editions in Berlin and Cologne
The international Ripplefest festival series, organized by renowned California independent label Ripple Music, returns to Germany this coming fall with two unmissable events! Ripplefest Berlin and Ripplefest Cologne promise a musical experience of the highest caliber for fans of stoner, doom and heavy psychedelic rock. Ripple Music, a label known for its specialization in heavy rock sounds, aims to promote emerging talents from the international heavy rock underground and bring together fans and bands from all over the globe. Dubbing their own festival series “Ripplefest”, the record label has been organizing showcase events for years, in cities such as Austin, San Francisco, London, Nantes, Stockholm, Cologne and Berlin.
The organizer of both Ripplefests is Max Röbel, frontman of Cologne’s heavy rock band Plainride and Head of A&R Europe for Ripple Music. About curating the festival, he says: “Creating a platform for music beyond the mainstream and being able to showcase it with such international lineups is a matter dear to my heart. These festivals are meant to be both a meeting place and a stepping stone for our acts, which is why I am particularly excited that with Kabbalah, Crystal Spiders, and Daevar, we once more have three bands with exceptionally strong frontwomen, on this year’s lineup.”
For Ripplefest Berlin, the label has announced Cannabineros, Kabbalah, Crystal Spiders and Appalooza, with these four bands also being a part of Ripplefest Cologne, joining the also confirmed Mother’s Cake, Fire Down Below and Daevar. More names for both editions of Ripplefest will be confirmed, so keep your eyes wide open for further announcements.
Ripplefest Berlin 2023 will take place at Roadrunner’s Paradise on November 25th, while Ripplefest Cologne will take place at Club Volta, on December 2nd. Tickets for both events are now available for 20 euros and can be purchased online via the festival’s website, here.
